Add paved areas
If you have looked at modern designed gardens on Instagram, you would have seen immaculate gardens with some paved areas. Paved areas add a sophisticated style to your outdoor area and it helps to add extra dimension to the garden. If you are looking to add a summer house or a shed to your garden, it is a good idea to install it on top of a paved piece of your garden, as this will give your summer house or shed a sturdy and even base.
Add a swimming pool or Jacuzzi
This will add a fun factor to your garden! If you are looking to change a permanent improvement to your home, then a swimming pool is ideal. If your swimming pool is outdoors, it will be usable all year round if it has a heater. However, it can be costly to heat a swimming pool for the whole year, so Jacuzzi is a temporary cost-effective alternative. You may decide to buy an inflatable hot tub as they are not as expensive as a huge multi-jet plastic version, all that matters is that you get enjoyment out of your new fun garden feature.
Add a social area
If you are looking to host parties and gathering in your garden, it is a good idea to have a social area. Social areas help to bring fun to a party, as you can have segregated areas for different types of activities. You may have a table tennis area and there may also be a seating area, so guests can relax and play card games.
Create a playground (if you have children)
If you want to go all out and give your children a fun filled garden to play in, then a built-in playground is a great idea. You can get a play area specially designed for your garden and the play area can be built in to the ground, so your child has safe equipment to play on that isn’t likely to come out of the ground. The type of play area you will have in your garden will vary depending on the age of your child and how many children you have. Soft play areas are ideal for younger children and taller climbing frames are ideal for older children.
